HTB1840 Compact Henry Battery Scrubber Dryer
The HTB1840 is a compact battery powered scrubber dryer that is perfect for use in busy public areas, confined spaces and environments where cables can become snagged on equipment or furniture.
This relatively new machine on the Numatic fleet has quickly become one of the most popular as it is easy to use, easy to store, and can get almost anywhere.
How easy is the HTB1840 to use?
The HTB1840 is very simple to operate and requires very little training to use. All the controls on the machine are very intuitive, the machine is very lightweight and therefore a pleasure to manoeuvre, even in confined spaces.
The smaller size of this machine makes it very easy to navigate around even some of the most narrow of the walkway
The removal of the power cable in favour of battery power means that there is less time spent unhooking the mains cable when it gets snagged and more time spent simply getting on with the job. The worry of knocking items off shelving with the trailing power cable is also removed.
Can it clean right up to edges?
Yes, the brush on the machine is slightly offset to one side allowing edges to be tackled with ease, the squeegee blades also follow very close to the brush and pivot to follow the direction of travel, and this means that wastewater is recovered even during very tight turns.
Clean quicker and smarter than ever before with the HTB1840
The HTB1840 offers an effective clean in a single pass; this is a great improvement over the normally slow process of cleaning associated with a mop and bucket.
The HTB1840 incorporates internal solution and recovery tanks, as well as a rotary cleaning deck, this means that on each pass of an area the machine dispenses clean solution, scrubs it into the floor then recover the dirty solution leaving the floor dry enough to walk on. This means that unlike mopping dirty water is always kept separate from fresh water and that there is very rarely any need to go over an area more than once.
As the only clean solution is applied to the floor and then thoroughly recovered by the internal vacuum the cleaning results achieved by the HTB1840 are often far better than those achieved with a mop and bucket, it also saves a great deal of time.
Do the batteries need any special charging routine?
The batteries on the HTB1840 require no special charging routine and are designed to be left with the machine connected to the charger until the machine is required for use. Leaving the machine on the charger will not cause any damage in any way, it will not leave any memory in the batteries. This is ideal for rapid response cleaning in supermarkets and shopping centres as it means the machine can be on “standby” until needed and will always have a full charge.
What accessories do I need with the machine?
This all depends on your flooring, but generally, if you have a smooth flat floor we would recommend using the pads and drive board option above, if however your floors are uneven or have crevices then a brush may be better suited.
The best thing to do to check for the most appropriate accessories is to have a demo as mentioned below.
How long do the batteries last?
From a single charge, you will generally see 45 minutes of non-stop cleaning, this is plenty of time to take on most tasks. If however, you need a longer cleaning window a second battery pack is available that will double your cleaning time.
Can I have a demo?
Yes! We always encourage customers to have a free demonstration of machines where possible. Having a demo will allow you to see the HTB1840 working on your floor so you know it can do the job you need. We can also arrange for a selection of machines to be present at the demo in case you need to see something bigger or smaller.
We can also arrange for staff training to be carried out, this ensures that everyone knows how to operate your new investment safely and to its best abilities, it is also a proven way to extend the working life of the machine through proper maintenance.
